CROP FOR KIDS February 5, 2007
I have been meaning to get around to post about this all week.
Together with a group of amazing girls here in Melbourne, I am proud to say that I am part of the Crop for Kids All Day Crop. What started out as just an idea has already begun to grow and I am amazed at just how many people have been offering their support. Here’s the details and don’t forget to check out the blog here and help us get the word out there.
We are having an All Day Crop to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal. We would love for this to be a huge event within the Victorian Scrapbooking community and hope that you can all help us achieve our goal of donating a sizable amount to this very worthwhile cause.

A FRESH NEW LOOK February 3, 2007
So I have has a bit of a play with my blog today, and although I haven’t quite finished yet, what do you think? I even played around and added some brushes to my banner photo before loading it on. Nothing to extravagant, just something simple.
I am just about ready for today to be over…I have had a shocker of a headache all day and have taken some Panadol, had a nap and nothing seems to be budging it. Nothing much else has happened today besides housework and playing on my blog. Andrew is at work until 8pm and Caitlin and Georgia have been setting a new world record for how much mess they can make in one day.
Speaking of the girls it’s almost time for bed so I better go and run a bath.
I know…but I was just editing some of the photos I took today and thought I just had to share.
This is Caitlin and Melody.
and Georgia and Robbie
I met there Mum, Bec, while I was in hospital pregnant with Caitlin. I had been in a room with two great gals and then they decided to send me home. When I was readmitted 24 hours later my previous bed had been taken and I had to be put in another room on a different ward. I was miserable. The other two girls in my new room were horrid, to say the least, and just when I thought I was going to go insane, they wheeled Bec in. We soon became the best of friends and I will never forget the look on her face when she saw Caitlin for the first time a week later. She told me that she thought she was the most beautiful little girl she had ever seen and was absolutely besotted by her…funny nothing much has changed since then.
Leaving Bec in the hospital 4 days later was really hard, especially considering she had nearly 3 months to go.
Bec went into premature labour and tiny little Melody Anastasia was born one week to the day after Caitlin. When I saw Melody in the NICU just a few days later I remember thinking that I had never seen a baby so small in all my life. She too was just beautiful and boy was she a fighter. Now standing half a head taller than Caitlin, it is hard to imagine the heart wrenching start to life she had.
Anyways, almost six years later and another baby each, we are still the best of friends and I love that our kids are able to share a wonderful friendship just like their Mum’s.
